The workshop will cover tools and techniques used to correctly interpret 
textual location data into spatial descriptions that can be used in 
mapping and analyses. Participants will learn the fundamentals of 
georeferencing best practices through a combination of lectures and 
hands-on exercises, including paper maps, the MaNIS Georeferencing 
Calculator, GEOLocate, BioGeomancer and online exercises. Special 
attention will be paid to the specific and unique georeferencing needs 
and workflows of the TCNs and their digitization activities.

On behalf of the iDigBio Georeferencing Working Group and all of us at 
iDigBio - Hope to see you there!
